Peru

For over 25 years we’ve been trekking and running rivers in Peru – multiple trips a year. And, boy, have we missed it!

We dare you not to fall in love with all the incredible wonders: the landscape, the culture, the history. To provide the very best experience possible, we rely on the relationships we’ve nurtured throughout these many years, not the least of which is that with one of Peru’s “first families” of adventure, the Vellutino brothers.

These adventurous brothers, among the first white water kayakers in Peru, have explored almost every waterway and trail in their beloved country. Thanks to the close relationship we have fostered with this incredible band of intrepid adventurers, we’re able to provide the most unique, authentic, memorable, and satisfying Peru adventure travel experiences. It makes us very distinct from other adventure travel operators.

Our Peru adventure travel trips have been featured in National Geographic Adventure Magazine, Archaeology and National Geographic Traveler. And we take great pride to have run the first commercial descent of the Cotahuasi River – an adventure featured in Outside Magazine. 

Choose your journey! We offer a multitude of adventures from rafting to trekking to horseback riding to archaeological and cultural experiences. Join us and be blown away by all the very best of all Peru has to offer in one of our exceptional multi-sport adventures.  Explore some of Peru’s best-kept treasures and secrets, by land and by water, as you revel in just the right amount of luxury, on the vacation of a lifetime.

The Galápagos Islands (Ecuador)

The joy of surprise! The Galápagos Islands in Ecuador offer up the unusual and exotic in abundance! There are few adventures that can compare when you consider the sheer number of unique and friendly creatures that live in the wilds of the Galápagos. Spur your sense of wonder as you explore the islands and enjoy what can only be described as intense privilege communing with creatures that don’t run or fly away when humans approach.

The animals of the Galápagos Island archipelago tend to be quite fearless given the lack of natural predators. From the world’s only seagoing lizards to flightless cormorants and penguins, flamingos, frigate birds, albatross, clownish boobies, patriarchal giant tortoises, and 13 species of Darwin finches, there is no shortage of thrilling encounters to be had! It’s truly a surreal experience to witness such a variety of creatures — in such large numbers and so very close –  completely at ease with human visitors.

Choose a land-based adventure or luxury cruise! As part of a cruise or as a stand-alone destination, the Galapagos Safari Camp is a great way to experience the Galápagos. Relax in our eco-luxury tent camp – one of the first in Latin America – inspired by the African safari tradition in which our guests enjoy complete comfort under canvas amidst the wonders of nature.

Swim amidst thousands of among the 300 species of vividly colourful fish and, for the more fearless, friendly Galápagos sharks – hammerheads and white-tipped reef sharks. Of course, you’ll likely see marine turtles and even whales. Needless to say, you’re sure to be awed by the seemingly limitless splendours beneath the sea! Experience land creatures, too!
